Brown County, Indiana, natives Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band bring their mix of American country and blues to the stage during Van Wert’s final Feel Good Friday on Friday, Aug. 4, at Fountain Park.

A veritable touring machine, the trio that is Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band performs as if every show is their last, leaving the stage every night with every ounce of energy spent. 

With his wife, Breezy, serving as a one-woman amen corner, and Max laying down the floppy-boot-stomp drums behind Peyton’s National steel slide guitar, the result is a peculiarly infectious blues crusade. — Chris Hupe
